Just an idea, but on other Mercedes engines, when there is a surging / fluctuating idle, some common sources are:

1. throttle actuator
2. mass air sensor
3. vacuum leak (which may give you bad codes suggesting that either / both numbers 1. and 2. are bad).

If your car is missing, a common source is a bad spark plug wire or bad boot.
